HiFIX (High Fidelity Tester Access Fixture)

Device Interface

MODEL IMAGE

The HiFIX lineup delivers clean waveform transmission, precision docking, and multi-DUT parallel test, with high reliability.

Along with technology for pico second clean waveform transmission, HiFIX requirements include precision docking and high reliability. ADVANTEST's versatile HiFIX product lineup offers support for requirements including memory, wafer, and manual test. This variety allows us to provide solutions optimized to specific test frequencies and device packages.

To ensure maximum quality of performance, all functions of the HiFix, including continuity and AC/DC checks, are performed throughout the manufacturing process.

Manual HiFIX

This HiFIX is for manual hand test. It is mainly for use in R&D applications, as in evaluation of devices under development. Its specifications can be tailored to the requirements of the customer. This low-cost, reliable product leverages many years of accumulated knowledge and experience at ADVANTEST.

SBC-TYPE HiFIX for T5503
(motherboard)

Using a high-performance coaxial connector developed by ADVANTEST, it allows DUTs to be swapped out by replacing only the socket board. This mechanism facilitates test of high-speed devices, and also leads to reduced cost of test. The SBC-TYPE HIFIX boasts improved transmission performance, and it entails lower costs when swapping devices. Supported packages include: QFP, CSP (?BGA), and TSOP II.
